Yeah, I'd like to know too since we were thinking about the Spec stage 3 or 4.
InfraredSVT...Did Spec say anything about the stage 4 that made you decide against it? Just wondering what they said since the stage 3 and 4 are described as street/strip.
Funny thing, after going to sites for Fidanza, Clutchmasters, and Spec, the descriptions for all 3 flywheels are nearly identical in specifications. Descriptions of clutches for Clutchmasters and Spec are nearly identical, photos are of different clutches but you can kind of see a similarity. I do believe that Spec is a major manufacturer.
Back in the day (makes me feel kind of old
) when I had my talon, I ordered a Clutchmasters clutch, was very poor quality. Diaphragm fingers were uneven, and all they did was change the leverage point on an otherwise stock clutch, paint job was even ugly. Needless to say I returned it even though it would have probably run fine, but I couldn't see paying that kind of money for it. ACT was a newcomer and I ordered one from them. It was a thing of beauty, I honestly felt bad installing it. They made their own diaphragm which was twice as thick as stock, fingers were chromed where throwout bearing would make contact, clutch body was reinforced, and beautiful yellow paint job. Clutch was awesome, very streetable, no chatter, very smooth, and massive grip, for less money.
Now, I don't know if Clutchmasters has gotten better, or ACT worse, but I do wish that ACT made one as another option.
